's justice correspondent pete williams who has the latest on the suspects and the investigation. pete, good morning again to you. >> reporter: good morning, savann savannah. we've been told the names of these told. we're told that they're brothers. they've been in the united states for at least a year. one of them was living in the cambridge area. we're told that the man with the white hat, the one on the left, the one who is still at large, the one who is the reason for all of this police activity and this extraordinary lockdown in boston and the suburbs is 19 year old tsarnaev. he has a massachusetts driver's license. is a resident of cambridge. we don't know the first name of his brother. they obviously came here many months ago, at least a year ago. the other thing is it bears repeating, savannah, that all this started thursday night not because the fbi was moving into arrest them. there was no tactical operation planned. five hours after the fbi showed their pictures. they were not about to arrest them. five hours after the pictures became public, they apparently decided to make a run
that this is not the case. savannah? >> pete williams our justice correspondent. we know you will continue to monitor it. that is a piece of new information that there was another bomb found the charles gate section of boston this morning, but that it was safe ly detonated by authorities and of course we will continue to work to determine what connection it bears and whether this does mean there are potentially accomplices here. as pete reported authorities are concerned about that. the town of boston and community of boston, more than a million people when you count the suburban communities are under lockdown this morning. they have been told by authorities, including this massachusetts governor who came out this morning and addressed the news media to give a message to the community, do not leave your house. public schools are closed in boston. the transit is closed in boston. there's a no-fly zone in effect over the boston metropolitan area. only law enforcement, of course, is able to take to the skies in that area. we have what can only be described as an extraordinary situation in a major american
at what these men were doing. it's motion video so they can watch their movements. >> all right. pete williams in our washington newsroom. no doubt a big step forward in this investigation. lester holt was on the street in boston when the photos went public at that very moment. he witnessed the start of what someone today called the first nationwide electronic crowd-sourced manhunt of the digital era. lester, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening. when the crowd watching us glommed onto the fact we were talking about pictures of suspects, the smartphones immediately came out. people started watching that video. one man said to me, i wish i knew them. the president was here just a few hours before we learned of the suspect. whether he knew about them or not is unclear. he had a message for whoever did this. we will find you. bostonians stood for hours in a line ten blocks long for a chance to publically share their sorrow and even their fears. >> i'm sickened by this. we live in such a free country and to have a sense of insecurity. ♪ >> reporter: inside the cathedral, tears
action on their own, which seems like wise advice. joining me is pete williams. this is a big development. what's the latest? >> reporter: it is a big development. the pictures don't show crystal clear view of the faces, of course. there's pictures that the fbi has not released. as you noted, they do believe they have images showing the man in the white hat, planting the second bomb, in the one in front of the restaurant. by the way, we have seen that picture from our affiliate whdh in boston that shows the garbage bag next to the mailbox. they say that this is now that that is not the bomb. that the bomb was planted on the other side of that barrier. it's right near there, but just on the other side. in the release of these pictures, then, they have chosen which they think will be most helpful to people in being able to recognize themment granted, the faces are never crystal clear but they hope the totality of the clothes and what they were doing and where they were will cause people to call in. they are getting the response they asked for or getting a response, any way. a lot of names.
williams has been on it from the start. pete, good evening. >>> brian, after sifting through that huge amount of photos and video from people and businesses, the fbi wants to now know about two people who stand out in all that material because of what they were doing before the bombs went off. investigators tonight are calling them suspects in the bombings investigators decided today to take advantage of one of their strongest leads, asking for public help in identifying two men agents are now the most interested in running down. >> we consider them to be armed and extremely dangerous. no one should approach them. no one should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement. >> reporter: one man is wearing a white baseball cap worn backwards, dark t-shirt, gray hoodie, dark jacket, dark pants
moving through the crowd at the marathon on monday. nbc's pete williams reports these two individuals will also now appear on official fbi wanted posters. the fbi had a choice about how they were going to talk about these individuals today. it is a choice that has to be inflected by our recent history of misidentify iing suspects in high profile domestic attacks, attacks like the anthrax attacks in 9/11 and olympic park bombing in 1996. the names and faces that appeared in the press early on in those investigations did not end up being the individuals held responsible for those crimes. given that history, given the fact that news organizations like the "new york post" are already showing an eagerness and shamelessness about publishing jump to conclusion statements about suspects in the boston bombing, information that is wro wrong, we'll have more on that in a minute, given that history given what's going on with this intense interest and the media being rather irresponsible about some of these matters, the fbi could have played it safer than they did today, they could have labelled t
, pete williams has reported on. and we looked at that carefully, and that's the scene of the blast of the second bomb. so this guy has planted the second bomb. we looked at the dark hat guy as they walk. it's just interesting that the dark hat guy looks a little older, walks in the front. and his bomb detonates first. they don't have a video of him planting the bomb. but the -- special agent in charge said they pieced it together. and what they pieced together was the backpack. i'm sure they pieced together the backpack. it's possible he could have laid his hat on the backpack. so they could have found the hat and the backpack. but they were able from the video to say a backpack looking just like that was there. they probably have video of these guys communicating and talking. that's an interesting report about his reaction. these cowards are probably exhibiting some glee and joy at this, you know, vulgar thing they did. but that's going to be they're undoing as well. >> yeah -- >> they underestimated -- they underestimated law enforcement. and they underestimated the resilience of
's not true. i was watching the other stupid nbc arm m bsz. >> no, no. pete williams who is the doj reporter over there. >> bill: that's the network. but their other arm was conflicting with them. cbs had it right. i'm not giving anybody else any credit. >> i jumped on the air as soon as i seen the conflicting reports which is 10 minutes after we had said we are being told by the.com property that the law enforcement officers say arrest. here is the situation. now there is conflicting reports now the >> bill: people i think people understand. >> people were very standing. >> you didn't get nasty emails did you. >> most part people said thank you for being transparent. >> it's cable news. part of the reason why people tune in they can be part of the process. you hold sort of the curtain open and let them see it. i was very honest about this is what we are being told. >> bill: this is not the first thing this has happened. all the time on the breaks information. you get erroneous information. >> it is strange. i'm puzzled i have to be honest that there are so many different law enforcement off
